Washington QB Sefo Liufau Becomes The Second 4-Star Commit Of The Buffaloes 2013 Class

New, 10 comments

So much for a nice quiet night to enjoy my anniversary. Blue-chip quarterback Sefo Liufau has given his verbal commitment to the Colorado Buffaloes in a rather shocking Sunday night development. A 2013 Buffaloes class that is short on numbers (VERY relatively speaking, this year is just strange with all of the early commits) is all of a sudden high on quality with a second 4-star pledging to head coach Jon Embree. This is the second high quality QB in the 2013 class to leave Washington after Max Browne recently decided to head south to USC. For the Buffs, this is another huge get, a player that was coveted by teams across the western portion of the United States. These are the kind of early commitments that can help recruit and shape the '13 class of Buffaloes. I'm very happily surprised by this one.

Welcome aboard Sefo!

Notes: From Rivals ($):
"I got the opportunity to visit Colorado with my dad on Monday and Tuesday last week and took a couple days to think about it and I decided to verbally commit and be a Buff," said the four-star quarterback prospect. "It is not all about football because there is more than just football. The campus at Colorado is beautiful and it felt like home. I took a tour around the campus and I had a meeting with an academic advisor and what he had to say was really good.

Liufau was named his league's offensive MVP last season.
"And with the football aspect, they run a similar offense to what we run at my high school. I sat in on a few quarterback meetings and the concepts and terminology is similar. That definitely helped because a pro-style offense is what I want to run in college. I really like the offense, the balance and versatility that it has."
